StrengthsFinder 2.0 Session & Networking Breakfast-December 3

Tue, Nov 12, 2013

Columbia, Maryland

Leadership in Action Program is a six-month leadership mastery program geared toward established and emerging leaders. This program is designed to upgrade the management skills of leaders and dramatically increase their effectiveness.

This program is suitable for supervisors, managers, directors, and high-potential employees being groomed for management.

Participants will meet each month for five hours over the course of the program. Topics include:

•             Time management for busy professionals

•             Leadership coaching skills and performance management

•             Engaging and recognizing employees

•             Crucial conversations and communication in the workplace

•             Effective delegation, holding people accountable and driving consistent results

•             Leading at a higher level

Each monthly session includes a leadership book, pre-work, demonstrations, role-plays, and homework exercises that will allow managers to practice their new skills and bring real work experiences to the sessions for feedback and learning. Accountability is built into the program to ensure the managers practice applying the skills and incorporate them into their existing management style. These modules will be very interactive and engaging, and allow participants to receive individual coaching during the process.

Exclusive MD|DC CUA Bonus Module! A seventh module, "Traits and Habits of the Most Successful Leaders," will be held in month nine. Participants will learn important habits of successful leaders and destructive habits that hold leaders back. We will check  in on progress, reinforce commitments and set goals for creating sustainable leadership habits and skills, and discuss tips for keeping the momentum going.

2014 Program Dates: Jan. 8, Feb. 12, March 12, April 9, May 14, June 11, Sept. 10
